Jessica Alba has revealed that she's battled with an eating disorder.
She admitted that as well as eating problems, she's also struggled with obsessive compulsive behaviour, anxiety attacks and insomnia. She told The Sun that she left school at 12 because she was so miserable and wanted so much more: "I stopped going to regular school at seventh grade. I had big dreams. I was focused at a very young age. I hated school. I didn't have any friends."
At the time she was also in the early stages of an eating disorder: "Everyone in my family is overweight. I wanted to be healthier, so I started cooking for myself when I was 12." The problem grew worse after she filmed Dark Angel in 2002, when she stopped eating and started a three-hour-a-day exercise regime. "A lot of girls have eating disorders and I did too. I became obsessed with it."
